Needing to Get My Head Showered: A Motorcycle Quest


The folks from Northern Ireland have a great expression: I need to get my head showered. Essentially, it means – I need a break. I need to get away from everything. That’s where I am right now. Between work and the weather and women, I need to escape. And I need to just head in a certain direction and leave things up to fate/God/the Universe or as the Chinese say: Yuanfen. So that’s what I’m doing tomorrow. I’m heading in the general direction of the Gulf of Mexico and I figure that even a pretty disoriented guy like me can still manage to hit that. After all, it’s a pretty big target.
I’ve just finished writing my latest book. Normally, after I complete one I feel lost, disoriented, have orbit and reentry problems. I hope to get it up on Amazon soon and I hope that you’ll like it. It’s called: Hope Bats Last. It’s about an older man who may or may not have Alzheimer’s and who’s making one last cross country trip on his motorcycle. It’s got the usual mayhem, romance and murder in it along with a man who’s leaving his travels to fate. Probably sounds familiar. I’ll keep you posted.
